Zack Greinke is married to a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader; he's young; he's a multi-millionaire; he's already won a Cy Young award; and he has nasty, nasty stuff. Whatever his issues are...self-confidence ain't one of them. In addition to being the best pitcher on any given team, he thinks he's the best hitter, golfer, World of Warcraft player, etc. In the end, he was kind of an ass. But I will miss him a great deal. Since the trade went down, I have been in a serious funk. It's kinda like I felt when Brad and Jen broke up.
Here's my take on the guys the Royals got:
Alcides Escobar -- slick-fielding shortstop #AtLeastHeIsntYuni
Lorenzo Cain -- has a hitch in his swing #NotSold
Jeremy Jeffers -- a big arm for the pen #OurPenIsGoingToBeSick #DontCareAboutTheHappyWeed
*It's good to get some more dark-skinned players #NotRacist
Jake Odorizzi -- yet another good pitching prospect #BestSystemInBaseball.
